Catalysts are one of the five weapon types that characters can use in Genshin Impact.

Due to their elemental nature, all Normal and Charged Attacks performed with a Catalyst are considered elemental damage. The element of the damage depends on the wielder's vision.

Normal Attacks

A Catalyst user's Normal Attack can be a single-target or AoE attack, depending on the character. Every attack applies the attacker's element to the target. For example, Lisa emits an Electro charge and Klee throws a Pyro bomb.

In general, Catalyst user's Normal Attacks will hit the target near instantaneously at range. However, some Catalyst user's Normal Attacks (Klee, Ningguang, Yanfei) have some travel time. In addition, while most Catalyst users typically have 4-hit Normal Attack chains, there also exists 3-hit Normal Attack chains (Yanfei, Klee) and ones with only 1-hit chains (Ningguang).

Charged Attacks

Most Catalyst users' Charged Attacks typically consume a certain amount of stamina, before unleashing a more powerful AoE attack centered around the target after a short delay. For example, Klee fires a large bomb and Sucrose blows a powerful gust of wind. However, Ningguang's Charged Attacks deal damage to a single target.
